Any suggestions for strong readings of this awesome song in the electric form from the 80's?

I like the way Jerry uses his Mutron on this tune to give it that nice twang + Brent's merry go round keys. Looking for versions where Jerry's vocal delivery is smooth and clear.

Vocals are not too bad here and Jerry even remembers the words.

That '87 Roanoke show is quite good! Love how everyone cheers when Jerry blows half a verse in Duprees :)

Scarlet > Fire is quite hot as well. Looking forward to the Crazy Fingers!

Not that I'd call any of them strong compared to the 60's versions. Here is one where Jerry sounds pretty good despite just getting over a cold and some minor vocal flubs. http://www.archive.org/details/gd1989-04-05.sbd.walker-scotton.miller.83501.sbeok.flac16 I recall there are a couple decent earlier ones too but can't seem to find them now.

One mans’ ‘smooth and clear’ may vary from the next, but this one might be worth your while : http://www.archive.org/details/gd1985-06-15.sbd.walker-scotton.miller.96317.sbeok.flac16
And if you haven’t already listened to this show, it’s pretty awesome:
